Stout’s Island Lodge has been captivating visitors for nearly 150 years. By landing on these historic shores, you’re joining a long list of adventure-seekers (and unapologetic leisure-seekers), prominent industry tycoons, lovebirds, and families who find what they’re looking for here.

At Stout’s Island Lodge, our lodging options are as unique and memorable as our incredible setting. No two rooms are alike. Feel like a lumber baron with the historic charm of the Main Lodge, Harry’s Cabin, Allison’s Cabin, or Gardener’s House. Or, if your tastes run more modern, try Clara’s Cabin, Katherine’s Cabin, Wilson’s Cabin, Douglas’ Cabin or the Shore Lodge. All rooms include a coffee maker, mini-fridge, hair dryer, and beautiful garden or lake views. We have 43 individual rooms on the island that accommodate groups of up to 150 people depending on required sleeping arrangements.

Social Gatherings:

In a place that was built for summer family fun, we are certain you will find everything your family needs and more for that perfect reunion. Group meals, private cabins, and many activities (both on the island and off) make Stout’s Island an ideal destination for a families who want some together time. Discounts are available for groups renting ten or more rooms.

Corporate Retreats:

Come for the retreat. Stay for the weekend.

Built in 1903 by lumber baron Frank D. Stout as a summer estate for his family, Stout’s Island Lodge has been frequented by heavy hitters since Carnegie. It’s an unparalleled haven for recharging, unwinding and team building. The phrases “stunning scenery,” “worry-free,” and “private island” aren’t typically associated with corporate meetings. Then again, Stout’s Island Lodge is anything but typical. This rustic paradise offers the perfect setting for a restorative and productive escape. It’s conveniently located just two hours from the Twin Cities, and we have everything you need to get the job done — and have a bit of fun in the process.

From the moment of arrival, we make everything effortless. Your guests can arrive in a single group and take a private ferry to the island or arrive individually for our scheduled ferry service. Your guests can have the convenience of charging food, drinks, and souvenirs to their own room by providing a credit card upon check-in. Any expenses that your company will be covering can easily be charged to a single group account while remaining confidential to your guests. Interested in distributing materials to your guests? We’ll provide them upon check-in or place them in the assigned rooms.

Weddings:

Stout’s Island Lodge offers an elegant yet relaxed setting with a selection of private event spaces for intimate groups of 10 people, to large tented weddings for up to 175 guests. Built in 1903 by Frank D. Stout as a summer retreat for his family and modeled after the famous Adirondack camps, the lodge was built with four-inch thick plank floors and carved beams imported from Germany. Cabins were erected for his children and other buildings included a three launch boathouse, servant and guest quarters and a recreation hall. Over the past 25 years, new cabins have been erected on the island as well. We have a total of 43 guestrooms on the island.

Stout’s Island Lodge has a rich history brimming with unique rustic charm and beauty. Imagine a spectacular ceremony on the South Lawn with panoramic views of Red Cedar Lake, or a tranquil gathering in the former master bedroom of the Stout Family with barrel vaulted ceilings and a wood burning fireplace.

We have many activities for you and your guests to enjoy at Stouts. In addition to croquet, we have tennis, bocce ball, hiking trails, swim dock, water boats (water bike, canoes, kayaks), billiards and ping pong. We also have a Great Room full of board games. Many people also like scavenger hunts for the kids in their group. If this is of interest to you, the island staff would be happy to help coordinate. There is a beautiful golf course across the lake at Tagalong which many guests staying on the island take advantage of.

Catering:

We have an extremely talented Chef and culinary team who will work closely with you to plan the food and beverage for your event. Your meals are prepared by our gourmet chef in our very own island kitchen. We pride ourselves on fresh, upscale, delicious food sourced locally whenever possible. We even grow some of our own vegetables on the island. Select from our catering menu or customize your own menu with the help of our chef. Buffets and plated meals are available
